Imagine winning over $600,000 on a lottery ticket you got for Christmas. It happened to a 19-year-old Michigan woman who says the gift was from a friend.

An Early Christmas Gift From a Friend

The Detroit woman says she was out with a friend when he decided to give her an early Christmas present. The gift was a Lucky 7's Fast Cash ticket and it turned out to be a winner.

“I was out with a friend, and he purchased a Lucky 7’s Fast Cash ticket while we were at the gas station,” said the player. “He handed the ticket to me and said he bought it for me because he wanted to get me a little something as an early Christmas gift.”

The woman has chosen to remain anonymous but says they purchased the ticket at a Mobil gas station on Van Dyke Road in Detroit.

“We looked the ticket over together and when we saw I’d won the jackpot, we started screaming and jumping up and down! We looked the ticket over several times because we couldn’t believe it was real. I called my family right away to tell them the good news.”
